I'm just saying the small ring Mausers were originally chambered in cartridges like 6.5x55 and 7mm mauser, the 7.62x51 has a good bit more pressure than those old cartridges, and commercial ammo is loaded even hotter than the Nato.
On top of that the small ring Mausers don't have a reputation of being very strong and pressure friendly, there are several cases of small Mauser actions blown up by commercial .308.

Collectors shooting this rifle mostly use their own slightly downloaded reloads, and that would be my advice as well.
